Crywank are a band from Manchester that play melancholic, confessional songs of the anti-folk variety. Their sound would stay unquestionably morose, too, were it not for the goofy shtick that undercuts the emotive lyrics and lamenting fingerpicking. The album art for the band's third release, Tomorrow is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday is Stupid, is a newfangled ouroboros of sorts aided by a scrawled dachshund. And then there's James Clayton's moniker of choice: Crywank. Band name and album art aside, Crywank deliver a collection of heartfelt tracks that cut deep. Tomorrow is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday is Stupid is Crywank's first non-solo release, this one featuring Dan Watson on percussion. On “Crywank Are Posers,” Crywank takes cues from the Phil Elverum school of sad rock; Clayton puts his meditative acoustics to use while Watson hammers away a gentle beat.
Physical copies of Tomorrow is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday is Stupid will be available November 21 via Crywank's own label Worst Day of Your Life. The album is currently streaming on Bandcamp.
